    When pointing, you put dry mix between the slabs, then said leave to dry? Was there a step missing to wet the pointing mix after filling the gaps?

    5 parts sand to one part cement is that correct?

    I’m confused at why we’re creating a slight drop with the wooden pegs every 1.5m by 25mm? Is this for drainage or something

    What is the ratio of cement and sand mixed, may I ask?

    you create a fall with the pegs,but then when you compact it afterwards,surely you’ll very likely lose the correct fall ?
